Default M/V AMERICA from the SPIRIT OF PEORIA

Just a couple of miles downriver from the GOLDENROD is the M/V AMERICA, a 8,500 hp towboat. The plans have been for a restaurant, and although painting and other work has been done, it has yet to open up. Its thought that the owners are living aboard, so at least it is being used in some capacity. Note the large screened-in area aft of the stacks, most likely an outdoor dining area or bar. That is Matt Dow in the third shot, taking one of his 1000 pictures this trip.
